About Me


One Perfect Speech understands the very real fear many people experience when speaking in front of groups of people. We also believe that everyone has the ability to present a great speech when given the right coaching.

One Perfect Speech came about after years of colleagues and friends asking Jane to help them prepare for an upcoming speech or presentation. The concept of helping everyday speakers prepare for a specific speech soon grew as others began sending cell phone videos asking for feedback and guidance.

Jane’s focuses on each client’s unique needs and requirements, and then develops a personalized plan to fit their timeline. Using her Proven Approach, she guides the client through a step-by-step program that guarantees they are ready, poised and confident to give their best speech.

With her qualifications and personal experience in public speaking, as well as her background in both English and teaching, Jane is perfectly positioned to coach clients from fearful to fantastic.

Jane has a Bachelor of Science in English and Psychology, and a post-graduate degree in Education, from the University of Cape Town, South Africa. She also has years of experience as an etiquette coach teaching 21st century manners to business professionals.
